This High Def Version is Excellent!
The Stranger in Hi Def is excellent. I converted the .mkv file to an .avi and posted it on YouTube. I have always loved this film and I always search for the best quality print I can find. Great job! Thanks for giving this film a new life.

Ive been reading your reviews for several years now and find that you well meaning folks tend to be too liberal with your star ratings.
A few movies, such as THE STRANGER, obviously deserve a fiver, but you might be a bit more critical in your thinking and apply lower ratings where they belong.
Just because THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK is an iconic movie/documentary doesnt mean that it was well made or even interesting. I would give it no more than 1 or 2 stars. I enjoy even the single star movies most of the time, even when the print is poor, but I would rather be forwarned of poor print quality than be mislead with inaccurate ratings.
Thank you for listening

This isn't 720p. It's not even 480p. 640X480 isn't HD. It's still a decent print and a great movie.
Edit-YOU HAVE TO GO IN THE HTTP DIRECTORY TO GET THE MKV FILE.

I'm guessing you didn't download the 4.4GB mkv (Matroska) file, & I'm probably right.

reply to bandit2005
bandit2005 reckons "it really is a shame that the stranger is in pd" . What an unfathomable view to take. As if being in PD status is some how a degrading position for a movie to be in. How about all the people who can see it without having to pay a studio for the permission. PD status is something to celebrate not regret.

This is a great thriller. The acting couldn't be better. The cinematography is amazing. There is one shot where you see Welles and Young in silouette facing eachother after kissing that is especially beautiful. Look for a very young Richard Long who puts in a great support to the greats in this movie.

The resolution is a pleasant surprise
Am I to understand that in dollar shops they have started to sell BD disks already?

Highly recommended A list movie.
This has always been one of my favorite Welles movies. Straightforward entertainment under the studio system. No great innovation but superior thriller with Welles, Edward G Robinson, and Loretta Young.
